Emergency and First Aid Procedures:

Eye Contact: Flush immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Hold eyelids apart while flushing to rinse entire surfaces of eye and lids with water. Get immediate medical attention.

Skin Contact: In case of cold burns, immediately place affected area in tepid to warm water and keep immersed until circulation returns.

Inhalation: Remove patient immediately to uncontaminated area. Keep warm and at rest. If breathing has stopped or shows signs of failing, commence artificial respiration. Get immediate medical attention.

Ingestion: No emergency car anticipated since product is a gas under normal conditions.

Immediate Medical Advice: Severe inhalation/over exposure may sensitize the heart to catecholamine-induced arrhythmias. Do NOT administer catecholamines to an over-exposed person.
